Ironworker Learning Management System (IW-LMS)

Welcome to the Ironworker learning management system. This site provides the online portions of your training, including; electronic versions of your manuals, homework assignments, and tests.

Apprentices are required to receive at least 204 hours of classroom and shop instruction during every year of training. The subjects taken in the shop and classroom complement the hands-on training received in the field. Subjects include:

  • Blueprint reading
  • Care and safe use of tools
  • Mathematics
  • Safety issues
  • Welding
  • Oxy-acetylene flame cutting

The road to becoming a journeyman ironworker is through apprenticeship training. The Iron Worker's apprenticeship program is a well-organized and supervised method of training people—with little or no knowledge of the craft—to become journeymen ironworkers qualified in all trade segments. Most ironworker apprenticeships last 3 or 4 years, depending on local union requirements. An ideal schedule provides equal structural, reinforcing, ornamental, welding, and rigging training. The actual length of training for each subject may vary depending on the predominant type of work available in your local area.
